Obama Follows the ADL Line on the Armenian Genocide
24 Apr 2009
Power corrupts.
One day after vowing to battle Holocaust Denial, President Obama has publicly denied the Armenian Holocaust . In an exhibit of hypocrisy matched only by the “Anti-Defamation” League's Abraham Foxman's denial of the Armenian Holocaust , President Obama has dishonored anniversary of the start of the genocide by releasing a statement describing the Armenian Holocaust as an “atrocity.” Apparently, to President Obama, history is something to be twisted to the wishes of those who hold more power. Obama, like Foxman, values the cooperation of the Government of Turkey more than he values the principles that give rise to the dictum: “Never again!”

By denying the Armenian Holocaust, President Obama broke yet another campaign promise . We can now add “Holocaust Denial” to the long list of his other disappointments: the abandonment of single payer health care insurance, the escalation of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the failure to address “Don't ask, don't tell,” the failure to produce a stimulus plan that aides American workers, the failure to oppose outsourcing of American jobs, and the failure prosecute those who ordered and participated in torture.

As if these broken promises were not enough, President Obama has sought to defend and expand the NSA's ability to spy upon Americans , give the Government the ability to search personal computers at will , and to shut down the Internet at will . Despite these grievous violations of our trust, the American left has failed to organize against President Obama's Administration. Shall we add ourselves to the list of American hypocrites?
